[texts]Characterization of Microsatellite Loci in the Western Subterranean Termite, Reticulitermes hesperus, and Cross-Amplification in Closely Related Cryptic Species. (Volume 7) - Copren, Kirsten A.
This article is from Journal of Insect Science, volume 7.AbstractNew, and previously reported microsatellites, were characterized for a group of four cryptic sibling species in California (USA) in the subterranean termite genus Reticulitermes with the goal of finding loci appropriate for population and species level studies. Three new microsatellites were identified originating from R. hesperus, and 19 loci previously characterized in R...

[texts]Identification of multiple independent horizontal gene transfers into poxviruses using a comparative genomics approach. (Volume 8) - Bratke, Kirsten A
This article is from BMC Evolutionary Biology, volume 8.AbstractBackground: Poxviruses are important pathogens of humans, livestock and wild animals. These large dsDNA viruses have a set of core orthologs whose gene order is extremely well conserved throughout poxvirus genera. They also contain many genes with sequence and functional similarity to host genes which were probably acquired by horizontal gene transfer.Although phylogenetic trees can indicate the occurrence of horizontal gene transfe...
[texts]Learning autonomy in two or three steps: linking open-ended development, authority, and agency to motivation. (Volume 4) - Andringa, Tjeerd C.
This article is from Frontiers in Psychology, volume 4.AbstractIn this paper we connect open-ended development, authority, agency, and motivation through (1) an analysis of the demands of existing in a complex world and (2) environmental appraisal in terms of affordance content and the complexity to select appropriate behavior. We do this by identifying a coherent core from a wide range of contributing fields...

[texts]Opposing Activities of DRM and MES-4 Tune Gene Expression and X-Chromosome Repression in Caenorhabditis elegans Germ Cells. (Volume 4) - Tabuchi, Tomoko M.
This article is from G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics, volume 4.AbstractDuring animal development, gene transcription is tuned to tissue-appropriate levels. Here we uncover antagonistic regulation of transcript levels in the germline of Caenorhabditis elegans hermaphrodites. The histone methyltransferase MES-4 (Maternal Effect Sterile-4) marks genes expressed in the germline with methylated lysine on histone H3 (H3K36me) and promotes their transcription; MES-4 also represses genes normally expressed i...

[texts]Indirectly Recognized HLA-C Mismatches and Their Potential Role in Transplant Outcome. (Volume 5) - Thus, Kirsten A.
This article is from Frontiers in Immunology, volume 5.AbstractHLA-C mismatches are clearly associated to alloreactivity after hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation; in a number of large cohorts, HLA-C mismatches are correlated to an increased risk of acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) or even impaired survival. While for HLA-A and -B, both antigenic as well as allelic mismatches are associated with an increased risk of acute GVHD, such an increased risk is only observed for antigenic HLA-...

[texts]A world unglued: simultanagnosia as a spatial restriction of attention. (Volume 7) - Dalrymple, Kirsten A.
This article is from Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, volume 7.AbstractSimultanagnosia is a disorder of visual attention that leaves a patient's world unglued: scenes and objects are perceived in a piecemeal manner. It is generally agreed that simultanagnosia is related to an impairment of attention, but it is unclear whether this impairment is object- or space-based in nature. We first consider the findings that support a concept of simultanagnosia as deficit of object-based attention...

[texts]Thermodynamics and NMR studies on Duck, Heron and Human HBV encapsidation signals. (Volume 35) - Girard, Frederic C.
This article is from Nucleic Acids Research, volume 35.AbstractHepatitis B virus (HBV) replication is initiated by binding of its reverse transcriptase (P) to the apical stem-loop (AL) and primer loop (PL) of epsilon, a highly conserved RNA element at the 5′-end of the RNA pregenome. Mutation studies on duck/heron and human in vitro systems have shown similarities but also differences between their P–epsilon interaction...
[texts]Dioxin-Dependent and Dioxin-Independent Gene Batteries: Comparison of Liver and Kidney in AHR-Null Mice. (Volume 112) - Boutros, Paul C.
This article is from Toxicological Sciences, volume 112.AbstractThe aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a widely expressed ligand-dependent transcription factor that mediates cellular responses to dioxins and other planar aromatic hydrocarbons. Ahr-null mice are refractory to the toxic effects of dioxin exposure. Although some mechanistic aspects of AHR activity are well understood, the tissue specificity of AHR effects remains unclear, both during development and following administration of exog...

[texts]The Role of Configurational Entropy in Amorphous Systems. (Volume 2) - Graeser, Kirsten A.
This article is from Pharmaceutics, volume 2.AbstractConfigurational entropy is an important parameter in amorphous systems. It is involved in the thermodynamic considerations, plays an important role in the molecular mobility calculations through its appearance in the Adam-Gibbs equation and provides information on the solubility increase of an amorphous form compared to its crystalline counterpart...

[texts]The power of consoling presence - hospice nurses' lived experience with spiritual and existential care for the dying. (Volume 13) - Torn?e, Kirsten A
This article is from BMC Nursing, volume 13.AbstractBackground: Being with dying people is an integral part of nursing, yet many nurses feel unprepared to accompany people through the process of dying, reporting a lack of skills in psychosocial and spiritual care, resulting in high levels of moral distress, grief and burnout. The aim of this study is to describe the meaning of hospice nurses’ lived experience with alleviating dying patients’ spiritual and existential suffering...

[texts]The Identification of Insulin Saturation Effects During the Dynamic Insulin Sensitivity Test. (Volume 4) - Docherty, Paul D
This article is from The Open Medical Informatics Journal, volume 4.AbstractBackground:: Many insulin sensitivity (SI) tests identify a sensitivity metric that is proportional to the total available insulin and measured glucose disposal despite general acceptance that insulin action is saturable. Accounting for insulin action saturation may aid inter-participant and/or inter-test comparisons of insulin efficiency, and model-based glycaemic regulation...

[texts]Nodular Inflammatory Foci Are Sites of T Cell Priming and Control of Murine Cytomegalovirus Infection in the Neonatal Lung. (Volume 9) - Stahl, Felix R.
This article is from PLoS Pathogens, volume 9.AbstractNeonates, including mice and humans, are highly susceptible to cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. However, many aspects of neonatal CMV infections such as viral cell tropism, spatio-temporal distribution of the pathogen as well as genesis of antiviral immunity are unknown. With the use of reporter mutants of the murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) we identified the lung as a primary target of mucosal infection in neonatal mice...

[texts]Reduction in BACE1 decreases body weight, protects against diet-induced obesity and enhances insulin sensitivity in mice. (Volume 441) - Meakin, Paul J.
This article is from Biochemical Journal, volume 441.AbstractInsulin resistance and impaired glucose homoeostasis are important indicators of Type 2 diabetes and are early risk factors of AD (Alzheimer's disease). An essential feature of AD pathology is the presence of BACE1 (β-site amyloid precursor protein-cleaving enzyme 1), which regulates production of toxic amyloid peptides. However, whether BACE1 also plays a role in glucose homoeostasis is presently unknown...
